of drought which people don't -- people underestimate droughts. drought probably cost more than sandy will in the long run because of the public sector. fewer games, and sandy is like, was a hurricane and then just whatever you want to call after that, that's a big debate. but we're talking about manhattan, want you to think about this. people are talking at sea level rise in inches, maybe a foot over decades. sandy produced storm surge of three to four meters, or over 12 feet, in one of the most densely populated areas in the united states. and everybody says, i didn't think this could happen. i'm like, well, i've got pictures in the '30s when they were flooding the subways back then. it just doesn't happen very frequently. we had -- all of their imaging equipment in the basement. it makes sense when you don't deal with storms every year, it's much easier to shield, it's isolated, and it's a great space putting that type of equipment. now if you're getting hurricanes every five or six years you wouldn't have built there. if you hadn't had a storm since the series of any magnitude, ma

sandy hook never happens again. would i oppose that executive order or support it? >> we would certainly report supporting threats of violence but that's not what previous administrations have done and it is not what we fear he is going to do. the idea that your doctor would ask you if you have firearms in your house, as part of an examination of your health, is repugnant because you have a right under the second amendment to own firearms legitimately. if the president wants a doctor to report a threat of physical violence, a citizen should do that as well as a doctor. but if what they want doctors to do is what they urged doctors to do in the past which help them demonize firearms by asking their patients if they have guns and implying that owning a gun is a health problem, then we're opposed to it. bill: we'll bring you back. there is a lot more on the executive orders that we need to get to. we'll sort through them one by one. david keane, thank you for your time. >> anytime. bill: a lot of e-mails on this. a lot of tweets on this. hemmer@foxnews.com is the e-mail. on twitter @billhem

on hand and when sandy had, the amount paid out exceeded the cash on hand in our existing borrowing authority. so congress has to appropriate almost $9 billion so we could go out and borrow enough money to pay those claims off. who is paying the interest on that? who was ultimately sat with the data if the insurance policies never pay that off? do the taxpayer. you are the insurance come me. it's called the national flood insurance program. you are responsible for that exposure and at the point where fema can no longer borrow enough money for congress cannot find my money, we will build a payer claims that the fault, which means it will come back to you the taxpayer to make up the difference. why was the flood insurance program created in the first place? remember that saying about it might be assigned? from the private sector said the risk and exposure to flooding is greater than our ability to make returns for shareholders. first of all, insurance companies are not evil people. they have a job to do to manage risk in such a way they can provide coverage at a rate which they pay ou

this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
